Really love my Waggner in this weather.

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Mon Dec 16, 2013 8:15 pm

Yesterday was the first day in nearly 3 weeks we have been above freezing. I have been feeding the stove pretty steadily for all that time and sure like having the loader.

When we built the house I added a small wood room right beside the steps. I sized it for a set of steel doors to fit on and it has a metal walk in door to the basement. .
Image

Getting it down into the wood room is pretty easy, just pull the lever.

that little room holds approx. 2/3 chord.

John, Now you just need to figure out a way to "bunk" the firewood so you can pick up a full bucket without having to load it by hand (or maybe you already have that figured out). :D

John, I'm happy to move half that load, with mine. You're abusing the poor machine!. (Plus, smaller loads, mean more seat time!)

Not as heavy a load as it looks, all that wood has been seasoned for 2 or 3 years. I have an air tight stove with a thermostat that will not burn wood that has been dried for less than a year. 2 to 3 is better.

That wood appears to be Oak; still pretty heavy even after setting for that long. Another demonstration what a Cub can do.

John, I like your loader, and your set up. Seems to work great.

Nice idea with the wood room. that's planning ahead. What is the wood in the pic, sassafras or maybe cherry?

Hi John,
A Great system of loading, transporting, and storing into the wood room. :{_}: Must be a very big firebox in your stove if it will take in that size of a log. :?: :?:
Keep warm,
Bernard,

That chore would be a lot more exciting if you would drop that extra set of weights on the back.

Mostly Oak, with a little other stuff mixed in.

It is a Sears air tight circulator with a thermostat draft. My old stove was getting cracks in the firebox and I found this one used 4 or 5 years ago. It was 20 or so years old, but had been used so little it looked like a brand new one. With it being in the basement I really like the thermostat draft, but you have to clean the chimney more often on an air tight stove than a normal one.
